Pan is banking on love of a familiar tale retold, on selling a sense of wonder, and on making everyone wonder how Hook and Pan went from being friends to mortal enemies–I’m betting on a cliffhanger on that last, myself. It is offering color and a more vivid Neverland than prior movies have managed thanks to improvements in CGI.
The studio just released some new images from the movie. Do they make you anticipate it more? Or less? Let us know in the comments.
Pan comes out on October 9, 2015.
Trailer and synopsis are below the images.
Synopsis for Pan
Peter (Levi Miller) is a mischievous 12-year-old boy with an irrepressible rebellious streak, but in the bleak London orphanage where he has lived his whole life those qualities do not exactly fly. Then one incredible night, Peter is whisked away from the orphanage and spirited off to a world of pirates, warriors and fairies called Neverland. There, he finds amazing adventures and fights life-or-death battles while trying to uncover the secret of his mother, who left him at the orphanage so long ago, and his rightful place in this magical land. Teamed with the warrior Tiger Lily (Rooney Mara) and a new friend named James Hook (Garrett Hedlund), Peter must defeat the ruthless pirate Blackbeard (Hugh Jackman) to save Neverland and discover his true destiny—to become the hero who will forever be known as Peter Pan.
Pan is scheduled for release on October 9, 2015
